PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Obama on Ohio State: "I think Craft's defense is unbelievable, and that makes the difference."
I like the Florida pick...I think MSU survives Louisville's region.
How cool of a moment must this be for the team? I'm sure they're used to the spotlight by now, but to have the leader of the free world, POTUS, watching your bball games, complementing your play, must be a pretty cool moment.
President Obama is usually pretty good with his picks. Glad to have him on the team!

Glad to know that the Pres and I have the same Final Four
Haha, I have the same Final Four in the 11W poll as well.
Damn, you guys too? I thought Florida was a bit of a sleeper. Guess I'm not unique.
They are ranked #1 in the country by KenPom...
I don't see it at all, Florida's closest win all year is by ten points over Alabama. If you can't win tight games, than you probably can't win in the tourney.
I picked Florida too after looking at KenPom. I thought it would be a different pick but to my surprise there are a lot of people picking them.
Yep I got the same Final Four as well haha.
Finally some common ground for Barry and I.

I hope this is a tradition that can continue, and I'm sure Andy Katz feels the same way.

POTUS must have copied my bracket... I blame the NSA for allowing him access to my ESPN account!
*I have 3/4 he has... I just have 'Cuse over IU.
The POTUS seems to like OSU in these tourneys. And why the heck not? The key now for him is if he poses with three other people to do an "O-H-I-O" picture, make sure he spells it right! lol
Class of 2010.
He's obviously partial to Ohio State.
Whoever those students are need to be banned from OSU, because the first pic they took, they let the President misspell O-H-I-O (they let him be the H, standing in the same position, and the guy to his right was the I, so OIHO).
That's a common mistake for newbies. You have to do it from the photographer's perspective not your own.
Or they did it on purpose. That is a story to tell the grandkids one day. 'Let me tell you what we did to the president when I was in college...'
'I even have a picture to prove it!'
Here you go.....LOL!
To make it worse, that dude on the left has some serious pit stains

Speaking of politics being banned from comments, is there a reason I keep getting political ads in the banners? I read a lot of news, so they might be tracking me, but this week it seems like out of the three banner ads 11W displays, one is always political.
Yes, you're being tracked. Not all the ads to the right of the comments are from 11W.
The South will NOT rise again!
I figured that, especially because I keep getting casino ads. I look up the hours, and the events at the Columbus one once, and bam, casino ads everywhere.
It's a Google based ad. They can't control that. Right now I'm staring a Subaru ad but I haven't been shopping for cars or even looking at cars online. Sometimes it is random, sometimes it's based on your viewing history.
if it is based on my view history...i'm surprised there are not more boobies on 11w.

Haha, I've been seeing those too. At least I'm not the only one who is seemingly confused. I was like, WTF? Why would I want to do that?
Cougars need love too...
So much so that they need their own website...
It would seem you have a 'Non Cougar' fan...
I gave you a prop though!
(and if my memory serves me correctly, Uncle Buck was married to a Cougar. Just sayin.)
She could be.
Thanks for the upvote there. I was expecting a few downvotes given the content, so no worries.
No matter which way he leans, Aaron Craft has got to smile at that shout out.
He spent enough time in B1G country, he knows what's up.
"Success - it's what you do with what you got" - Woody Hayes
I like the picks but he said Louisville wrong...come on man!
Which way do you propose?
The president is all about the chalk when picking the tourney. He stepped a little more on a limb this year, but I picked Florida to go to the Final Four too as did many others. We'll see what happens, gotta love March!
Tough to pick UF based on them having lost all single-digit games they played in this year, but I have them in the final four as well. Only difference between me and the POTUS is that I have Sparty going Final Four over Louisville. Why? I have no idea.
i think it's cool to see the president partake in such a popular American tradition
does anyone remember if Bush did this as well? I don't think so but i could be wrong
I don't ever remember Bush doing a bracket. I do remember him throwing the first pitch at the World Series after 9/11 though, and say what you will about his ideologies, homeboy (Bush) threw a nice pitch while wearing a bulletproof vest.
He was a relief pitcher at Yale. Played three games for Yale's freshman baseball team.
He was a big UT fan, too. Remember more than a few stories relaying when he would watch the Red River Rivalry.
My bracket, as always, is a sh*tshow. I'm glad I no longer play for money.
My bracket has gone Heisenberg. I have Illinois over Miami and Marquette. BREAKING BRANDON PAUL
Saw the title of the buckshot and figured I'd grab some popcorn and come read a barrage of grayed out comments. It's nice to see that perhaps we're making some progress on when not to write stupid stuff. As for my bracket, I actually decided not to pick one this year. Every year, I simply cannot pick against Ohio State so I have them going far and up until last year, I was always wrong. I believe that I'm a jinx so I figure if I don't pick a bracket, the opposite will happen this year. Come thank me when we win it all.
I guess I am one of the very few who are high on Kansas. Cuz I'm a homer, I have the Buckeyes taking out Sparty then Kansas to win it all in my bracket. My futures $ is riding on the Jhawks. I think Ben McLemore is the MOP.
